That's a pretty average time for first pregnancies to show, at 22 weeks. Here is something that is quite common though for heavier women . . . they typically gain less weight! Some even lose weight. The theory of why some are heavier is because their calorie take in for the day is higher and usually it doesn't go up much if any once pregnancy so they actually either maintain their weight or lose some pounds as their body cooks that baby! My good friend lost like 5 pounds pregnant after starting her pregnancy over weight. Just mentioning that because that is often welcome by some women. :>) Congrats on the pregnancy
I started showing around 4 months hard I believe it depends on the weight you start off with.. When I found out I was pregnant I lost alot of weight due to nausea in plus exercises.so it really depends good luck with the showing process it takes a while
I weighed 189 before pregnancy am now 9 weeks and weigh 179 from the last time I was checked I lost 10lbs I've never done this before so it kinda scared me a bit but they said it was normal I will be getting checked again on Thursday hopefully I haven't lost anymore weight but I am currently 9 weeks and am showing a little bit and I'm kinda chunky in a size 13 panys and xl shirts and stuff it's crazy this is also my 5th pregnancy
I'm am also a little heavy. With my first baby I did not show till about 25 weeks and only ended up gaining 1 pound in the end. I'm now 7 weeks 6 days with my second baby and my body is already changing shape. I have not gained any weight yet but it looks like all my larger areas are relocating to my stomach.
